HP Printer causes PC to freeze

Hi
One of my friends has a new HP Photosmart 8150. However, when he starts his PC it goes through the intitial checks and then freezes with a blank screen just before the XP Welcome screen would appear.
If he unplugs the HP Photosmart and then presses Ctrl Alt Del the PC then continues to start up. He can then plug the printer back in and everything works normally.
We have tried reinstalling the driver, but this makes no effect. Has anyone else encountered this phenomenon and if so were you able to resolve it?
